First hole with new Clam Drill Plate

Recommended Posts

I doubt it needs a new carb as they said it was the first time using. I saw some bursts of smoke at the 1:03 mark so I'm guessing the battery oil was at the wrong mixture...

That there was some painful viewing. "Let's test this thing out in the hardest possible scenario...we'll go re-drill some holes from last week". It makes a spud look hi-tech. Get a horse, buddy!

It was pretty evident that they failed to follow directions and not set the drill on low speed/high torque.

Directions?! You mean those bits of paper that lawyers put in the box? Nobody really needs those! I put my gas grill and kids playground set together just fine on my own!

The evil side of me kinda wanted to see some bloody toes flying across the ice laugh

But the real question: Are the instructions printed in various languages? If not I could see a Darwinian lawsuit if things went wrong.....

not sure if he could make himself look more futile if he tried

1. don't have proper auger (mine came with plate)

2. get extension

3. find some muscles and posture that know how to control an auger

I'd look the same way trying to change oil for first time if I was missing half of proper equipment as well. the plate and drill were only 2 things correct in video, LOL

The Canada hat should have been the first clue. grin

Honestly, I think there might be 2 things going on here. Obviously they have the drill on the wrong setting, but are they also missing blades?

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
    • Congrats Nice Bird!
    • Congrats! Way to stick to it. 
    • Been having a tough time getting out. Spent 2 days in Wisconsin with the shotgun. A couple encounters but both hung up out of range. Got out with the bow this morning in MN. An absolutely enchanting morning. Had a Tom engaged at 5:30. 5 Hours of gobbling, Phfft-ing, strutting, and staying just out of range or behind brush & trees. Finally stepped to where I could get a clear shot off.
